The Standard ATV (known as the Standard Quad in the British English version) is a type of ATV that is introduced in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It is a four-wheeled version of the Standard Bike, but it has different stats. The emblem is located on the front of the ATV. The Standard ATV provides good weight and traction boosts while reducing acceleration and handling. It shares its stats with the Steel Driver, Tri-Speeder, Badwagon, and GLA.

Most CPU-controlled characters will always pair the Standard ATV with the Monster tires, but many CPU-controlled lightweight characters (most notably the baby characters) will use the Standard tires with this vehicle body instead, with the exception of Larry and Wendy, who use the Monster tires like middleweights and heavyweights. Lakitu notably uses the Cloud Glider with this vehicle body unlike the others who all use the Super Glider.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it only shares its stats with the Badwagon and GLA. CPU Donkey Kong can be seen using this body with the Hot Monster tires, while Dry Bones is often seen using it with the Off-Road tires. In addition, Larry and Baby Rosalina pair this body with the Blue Standard tires. It has now been given a higher boost to speed on land and anti-gravity but now hinders acceleration and mini-turbo even further as well as water speed, air speed, land handling, water handling, air handling, and anti-gravity handling. It is the only ATV used by all CPUs in both versions of Mario Kart 8 with the exception of Dry Bowser, the Inklings, Yoshi, Baby Daisy, Baby Peach, Toadette, and female Villager.
